A selection of camera bags

Here is a selection of camera bags, for heavy duty and maximum protection, for fashion sensitive people or people who don't want to look like they carry 5Gs around, and finally, bags for backpackers and sports fanatics.


Pelican 1200 Case with Foam for Camera (Black)

A lighter & smaller version of the 1510 (see below) for the same level of protection, the cool looks but with less gear inside. Ideal if you must check it in the place but are afraid of airport personel playing football with your back. Comes with a key / locking system.

Zeikos ZE-HC18 Deluxe small photo and video hard case

This nice and compact protective case is very cheap (less than 35$) and ideal if you carry a camcorder or camera. You care about that fancy collector Leica too much to carry it in a soft back? This is the one for you. Also works to pay ransoms once filled with cash.

Pelican 1510 Case with Foam for Camera 

The real thing for travelers carrying a lot, worrying about damages and extreme transport conditions. It cost about 150$ (surprisingly cheap compared to a bag), can be filled with foam or traditional soft compartments. Ideal if you carry 3 camera bodies and 7 lenses with an assault rifle. Comes in different sizes, has a handle and wheels. Last but not least, nothing prevents you from using it as a suitcase :)


National Geographic NG A5270 Medium Rucksack

For an adventurer style, it doesn't scream "look at me I contain an expensive DSLR !". Notice that the side pocket is used to hold a tripod which is ofter a weak point on most bags.


107 Camera Bag

Yes it is pricy, but it's the fine stuff. Hand made, fine leather, waterproof exterior. It will look great with your Burberry trench or you Ralph Lauren week end bag. 

CaseCrown Vintage Parisian Style 

Very cheap, really not camera bag looking at all. It probably isn't really the most ergonomic piece of this selection, but surely the one that looks the least like a camera bag.

Kelly Moore Boy Bag, Shoulder Style Small Camera Bag - Brown  

Reasonably priced, water resistant, it also doesn't look like a camera bag. It can fit and SLR with a couple of lenses and a laptop, but you need to separate the body from the lens. 
Ona Camps Bay Camera and Laptop Backpack, Handcrafted with Waxed Canves & Leather 

Expensive, but that the price of luxury. Fits an SLR with 7 lenses, waxed, leather, also comes in camel color. Would look nice on the passenger seat of your 1980 Porsche Super Carrera.

Tank Retrospective 20-GR Tall Shoulder Bag - Pinestone Cotton Canvas

Reasonable price, nice discrete finish, this very casual looking shoulder bag is probably the most discret of my selection. Ideal not to look like a complete tourist, locals will think you're just an other guy going to work.


Lowepro Sport 200 AW Digital SLR Camera Backpack

The bag for skiers, climber and other Bear Grylls enthousiasts. I tried it, it is very good. Light, very light actually, it is a proper backpack with a camera compartment that you can access from the side. You can also remove it and use it as a normal backback. What I really liked about it: the camera compartment has a strong that goes all around it, that you can tighten up, so that no matter what you do, the gear doesn't get shaken at all !

Kata KT D-3N1-22 3 In 1 Sling /Backpack with Laptop Slot

What smart about this one is that it can be use as a backpack, or as a sling bag. It's rather compact, still has a little room for extra stuff on top. Also it can be combined with that Tripod Holder.

Wolverine BP202 Camera and Laptop Backpack

A large normal compartment on top (the bag is actually quite big) with a sand color fabric that makes it look "cheaper" than a super tech looking Lowepro. Probably a good idea for countries like India, and large enough to be your only bag.
